The world has gone gray-fuzzy, blurry, gender-neutral gray. In a secularist culture, many people today are confused about what it means to be a man or a woman. Even the church struggles to understand the meaning of manhood and womanhood. In The Grand Design, Owen Strachan and Gavin Peacock clear away the confusion and open up the Scriptures. They show that the gospel frees us to behold the unity and distinctiveness of the sexes. In Christ, we have a script for our lives. Doxology, we discover, is in the details.
Owen Strachan is Associate Professor of Christian Theology at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Missouri. He is also Senior Fellow for the Council of Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (CBMW).
Gavin Peacock played for Chelsea Football Club. He is now Director of International Outreach for the Council on Biblical Manhood & Womanhood, and serves as a pastor at Calvary Grace Church in Calgary, Alberta.
We live in an age characterized by confusion on gender and sexuality ... Strachan and Peacock have provided a careful and faithful account of Scripture's vision for sexuality and gender. This book is urgently needed.

Strachan and Peacock don't simply defend a view of men and women that is traditional but now counter-cultural. They show it is beautiful.

Confusion abounds today on what it means to be a man and what it means to be a woman. Peacock and Strachan put feet on the biblical teaching.

In this short book they've laid out how biblical complementarity in the home and church is both good and glorious. I wish every Christian would read and apply The Grand Design.
